What’s going on Wednesday?
The Nor’Easter that’s supposed to hit NYC today is now is now predicted to not be as severe as first expected, but it’s likely to be a mess today regardless. Still, you might want to check a venue’s Twitter or Facebook (or even give them a call) before heading to see a show, just in case of cancellations.
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Elvis Costello & The Imposters @ Brooklyn Steel
When Elvis pulled out of a Las Vegas residency, New York became the beneficiary of his and The Imposters’ free time, who will play four area shows this week, starting tonight. The Imposters feature original Attractions drummer Pete Thomas and keyboardist Steve Nieve. and Elvis has 50 years of great songwriting to pull from.
‘The Music of Led Zeppelin’ w/ The Zombies, J Mascis, Bettye LaVette, Erika Wennerstrom, Joseph Arthur, Living Colour, Matthew Sweet, Nicole Atkins & more @ Carnegie Hall
Michael Dorf’s annual “The Music of” tribute concert honors Led Zeppelin this year, and there’s lots of cool stuff on the lineup, including fellow ’60s greats The Zombies, and guitar hero J Mascis whose take on Jimmy Page’s riffs should be a real treat.
Exodus, Municipal Waste, Extinction AD @ Irving Plaza
Due to the impending storm, this show has been postponed.
Secret Circle @ Market Hotel
Wiki is bigger than ever as a solo artist thanks to the success of last year’s great No Mountains In Manhattan, but he’s still finding time for his other projects like Secret Circle, his alt-rap trio with Antwon and Lil Ugly Mane. They play two Brooklyn shows this week, this being the second.
Moor Mother @ The Kitchen
Rising experimental artist Moor Mother is the winner of esteemed non-profit arts space The Kitchen’s inaugural Emerging Artist Award. She does a solo electronic set there tonight.
Ezra Furman, Anna Burch @ Bowery Ballroom
Ezra Furman is a joyous performer and always worth seeing. Ezra’s new album, Transangelic Exodus, is pretty good too.
Jonathan Wilson, The Shacks @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
“I wanted to balance personal narrative with the need I feel in 2018 for calming healing music,” says Jonathan of his new album which features Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty, and more. “I think we need whimsical surrealism, journeys in sound, psychedelic gossamer affairs.”
Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
